Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these The Blackthorn Key by Sands, Kevin (September 1, 2015) Hardcover I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

Amazing book, so hard to put down!
By K. Cochrane
Absolutely loved this book! I am in my 20's (so, definitely not a middle school kid!) and found I had trouble putting the book down. I loved the Harry Potter series and have been searching far and wide to find another book/series that captivates me as much. This one most certainly did! There is mystery, plans-gone-wrong, humor, fight scenes...I could go on and on about this book! I really hope Kevin Sands writes more books and hopefully makes this a series--the end left it open for more to come!

Written by Kevin Sands, The Blackthorn Key is a thrilling mystery for older kids, set in London in the 1600s. Christopher Rowe is the main character, a 14 year-old orphan who has been apprenticed to an apothecary. His master, Benedict Blackthorn, treats Christopher with uncommon kindness and respect while teaching him the skills to become an apothecary in his own right. Ultimately, Christopher and his friend, Tom, find themselves in a desperate battle against the Cult of the Archangel, which has been systematically murdering apothecaries in London. The mystery is enhanced by the use of clever ciphers, secret dungeons, and unusual medicinal remedies. And which of the realistic characters can the boys trust? Will Christopher decode the clues within clues in time to save himself and others?
I used this book as a read aloud and would not suggest it for kids below middle school due to the graphic violence, which I filtered out. Axes and swords make for messy battles, along with a brief torture scene using acid. Kids will love Christopher's penchant for blowing things up; the tender relationship between him and his master/father figure is a bit of a tear-jerker. Kevin Sands accurately portrays the era, with its dreadful sanitation, political intrigues, and abuses of power. We are transported to a time when people used poop on sores and drank poppy tea as a pain reliever. There are a few anachronistic references, primarily verbal expressions, but this book could easily spark a study of British history, ciphers, and medicine. And explosives!
The Blackthorn Key is a 5-star read, even for adults. I've already started the sequel, Mark of the Plague, which is another winner!
